Good news Bible : today's English version by United Bible Societies ( Book )

The Bible in Today's English Version is a new translation which seeks to state clearly and accurately the meaning of the original texts in words and forms that are widely accepted by all people who use English as a means of communication. This translation does not follow the traditional vocabulary and style found in the historic English Bible versions. Rather it attempts in this century to set forth the Biblical content and message in standard, everyday, natural form of English. The aim of this Bible is to give today's readers maximum understanding of the content of the original texts. The Preface explains the nature of special aids for readers which are included in the volume. It also sets forth the basic principles which the translators followed in their work. The Bible in Today's English Version was translated and published by the United Bible Societies for use throughout the world. The Bible Societies trust that people everywhere will not only find increased understanding through the reading and study of this translation, but will also find a saving hope through faith in God, who made possible this message of Good News for all people. - Foreword
The Greek New Testament by Kurt Aland ( Book )
25 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The critical apparatus includes exegetically significant variants but adds extensive manuscript evidence for each variant, thereby offering in-depth instruction for students on how variants and the evidence for them work together. --from publisher description

Traduction œcuménique de la Bible : comprenant l'Ancien et le Nouveau Testament : traduits sur les textes originaux hébreu et grec avec introduction, notes, références et glossaire ( Book )
12 editions published between 1975 and 1997 in French and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Oeuvre collective de plus de cent dix collaborateurs appartenant aux différentes confessions chrétiennes, la TOB supporte bien la comparaison avec les meilleures traductions françaises de la Bible actuellement disponibles. Scientifique, mais destinée au grand public, elle a fait l'objet de vérifications impitoyables avant d'être diffusée. L'édition de l'Ancien et du Nouveau Testaments en un seul volume que nous présentons ici a été allégée des introductions aux différents livres et de l'appareil de notes très développé de l'édition dite "intégrale" en deux volumes. Seule l'introduction générale à la Bible a été conservée. En bas de pages, on trouve des notes sur les difficultés du texte, sur les problèmes de traduction et sur les particularités d'ordre historique, géographique ou culturel ainsi que les références aux versets parallèles. Huit cartes hors texte en couleurs. Tableau chronologique de l'histoire des hébreux. Glossaire succinct. Caractéristique dominante: fidélité objective au texte original
